Welcome back! Some of your questions go beyond my lax knowledge, but I

will try to answer them as best I can. Also, there are a couple of posters here who have seen at least a bit of practice who may be able to address the points I can not.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "pure" crease attackman but Kraus has been playing back of the net most of the time. D'Amario almost never plays from there and I have seen Laviano there only very occasionally. Yes, he is still small and while he is an excellent feeder that might hinder him trying to pass over the cage. Lars has had Gordon playing from back there more than a few times, but he is much more likely to curl around and shoot from a sharp angle than try to feed.

Lars seems to appreciate the need to be careful and not burn out our exciting 2 way middies. While there is not much chance at practice to see how he plans on moving guys from the box (as he did with Lukacovic), he has had Moore do that a few times when I've been there, Dox maybe just once or twice, and Conrad never. Interesting, right?

Frankly the other questions are over my head. It's easy to see that opponents are going to have their hands full.
